Pickle Ball

Do you have experience in pickle ball?

We are currently looking for a host to facilitate pickle ball games. Please contact Vicki Gill at vicki@palmasolabayclub.com if this interest speaks to you. What is pickle ball? Pickle ball is a paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffle Ball, over a net. There are several groups in the area. Courts are within walking distance.

Health Benefits of Pickle Ball

Like every other physical activity, pickle ball has several health benefits. Moving and grooving outside while playing pickle ball can build stronger muscles, can prevent obesity and stabilize high blood pressure. Along with physical health, pickle ball can improve your mental health. For example, exercising in general is known to be associated with lower levels of depression. This is because your body releases endorphins which make you feel good. Plus, this game is fun and has high levels of enthusiasm for those playing and watching. Furthermore, this mix of tennis and ping pong is a fun way to improve your overall health and to be active in the community.

Pickle ball doesn’t just improve your health, it can also improve your love for the community you live in. Each game consists of two teams of two adults each or one-on-one. While your partner can be your significant other, it can also be one of your neighbors. Make new friends or bring your friends to play with you. For instance, you can walk over to the court together, play a game and enjoy each other’s company. You might even sleep better after playing pickle ball due to the physical activity and cheering on your new friends.
